The next video in our Myosource Cheer Training focuses on Toe Touch Jump Ability. The kinetic bands help build leg, hip and core strength, which are essential for higher jumps, better form and safer landings. The Kinetic Bands can be used for warm up, stretching, jump training and strength development all during your normal stretching, warm-up, and practice routine.
This video is a continuation from the technique and form video of performing a Cheer Toe Touch. The video shows how to use Myosource Kinetic Bands to jump higher and become more flexible to perform your cheer toe touch jump.The Kinetic Bands are worn right above the knee and directly target the muscles used for jumping and tumbling. The bands provide resistance in the front and in the back to build strength in the legs, hips, glutes, and throughout the core.
Notice that when Ashley performs her Toe Touch with the resistance bands she has to work through the resistance and hold her form. When the bands are removed she feels light and is able to jump with more power and explosiveness. The resistance causes the muscles to fire, which results in building muscle strength throughout the legs, thighs, hips, glutes, and core. The bands are working to build muscle strength, which is essential for gaining for cheer jumps.
Often cheerleaders worry that they will build big bulky muscles but Myosource Kinetic Bands tone and firm the muscles through conditioning to increased elasticity for full range of motion. The bands do not restrict or limit cheerleaders from performing their jumps, stunts, drills, and skills while wearing the bands. They are simply added to any workout or practice to mimic jump movements just as they will be performed while cheering and in competition. Building more power in the legs, hips, thighs, glutes, and core with Myosource Kinetic Bands will result in impressive great looking jumps.
